We all know life is hectic and doesn’t slow down for anyone. It seems like we just try to fit more and more into the 24 hours that we have each day. Even more, as a single mom who works full time, the demands seem endless!
Wondering how I stay focused with a full plate each day?
One thing that grounds me and helps me re-focus and re-center is meditation. I typically do 10-15 minutes in the morning, before I even get out of bed. That way I’m calm and restored before I have to hit the ground running.
If you’re new to the meditation game, there is an amazing (bonus: it’s free!) app I like to use called Insight Timer.
I keep this app downloaded on my phone and I’ve been using it for more than 2 years now. I started with a 10 minute guided meditation for beginners and I still continue to use that same one quite frequently. The messages are positive and it encourages focus on breathing while being completely present in the moment. It is truly the way I need to start every day before life, in all its glory, hammers me.
The significance of meditation bracelets.
The natural stone beads really caught my interest when I first started making bracelets. It was so intriguing to learn of their significance. Their meanings go back hundreds of years and these stones possess many healing properties. These meanings got me thinking about my life.
The reality is, I have so many things I want to do, see, and learn about in life. There things I want to change about myself, but these are things I have to be patient and wait for to happen. However, I can honestly say that I am completely content and genuinely happy with my life. I literally walked around yesterday thinking about how happy I am and I believe it is because I am truly present in each day.
So I wanted to make a bracelet that reminded me to slow down and enjoy the moment I am living in because that is all I really have. We all know you can’t change the past and it’s pointless to spend our precious time worrying about the future. Therefore, living in the present moment and celebrating all the good things in my life has changed my focus and quite honestly, my level of contentment!
My mediation bracelet and what it represents.
It’s inevitable, we all have our bad days! Therefore, I wanted to create a meditation bracelet as a daily reminder for the times when I am not feeling so happy or fortunate and need help regaining focus. Not only do I love the colors together, but I also love what the stones represent.
I chose the following stones:
- Ideal for quiet meditation.
- Aides in finding real purpose in life.
- Calming and soothing.
- Creating a flow of wholesome energy.
- Healing crystals for the physical heart.
- Stones of self acceptance.
I absolutely love it and my favorite part is that none of the stones are alike. The color and pattern variations will ensure that each bracelet will be different. You can have your own, one of a kind bracelet that is as unique as you are. Celebrate your uniqueness! Because really, who wants to be the same as everyone else?!
